10k: Family Hauler: 1972 Datsun 510 Wagon

The phrase “nicest Datsun 510 Wagon you will find for sale in Canada” gets tossed around on the internet about like a bad cliche.   I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that title attached to some undeserving rusty wreck, but today, it might just be true.  Find this 1972 Datsun 510 Wagon offered for $12,800 CAD ($11,666 USD) via Kijiji.

The Datsun 510 (known as the Bluebird outside the US & Canada) was a small sedan from Japanese parent company Nissan available as a 2-door, 4-door, and wagon.  This particular example is riding on a nice looking set of minilite style wheels and the paint looks shiny.

Under the hood is a 1.8 liter single-overhead-cam inline-4 good for 105 horsepower.  It isn’t the sexiest engine to ever leave a factory, but it’ll make decent power and get the job done.
